    Sam's Club sells Land Of The Dead for $11. I've been to 2 different local Sam's stores and they both had plenty of copies.

    Outlaw Volleyball: Red Hot -R1
    Streetstyle Street Soccer -R1

    The Toys-R-Us exclusive:
    Sneakers -R2


    I'm usually derisive of Platinum Hits versions, but at least these particular combo packs were exclusive to the Xbox and not trip over common.
    Crash Super Pack -Wrath of Cortex & Nitro Kart -R2
    Sonic Mega Collection Plus and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe -R2
    Sonic Heroes and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe -R2
    Shrek 2 and Shark Tale 2-in-1 Pack -R2

    The Xbox never had a Platinum edition Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, so you get the regular version disc in the combo packs.




    What follows has less to do with discussing rarity and more to do with things that might be of interest to Xbox collectors. You might like to keep an eye out for the ToCA Race Driver 2/Colin McRae Rally 04 bundle, Mace Griffon Bounty Hunter with bonus music sampler and World Championship Poker with the bonus Fundamentals of Poker Book. They're probably R2's at best, but they are variations from the regular versions.

    Grand Theft Auto and Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind games both came with large fold out maps. These were the only Xbox game that I've come across that had anything extra inside, bonus DVD's, movie tickets, music CD's, collector cards, ect., that isn't clearly noted on the case.



    Xbox Demo discs in DVD cases:
    LucasArts Xbox Experience Vol. 1 Demo Disc -R3
    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 Companion Demo Disc -R3
    Volvo: Drive for Life 2005 -R2
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 1 -R1
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 2 -R1
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 3 -R1
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 4 -R1
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 5 -R1
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 6 -R3
    Xbox Exhibition Vol. 7 -R2

    EBGames/Gamestop Fable Limited Edition Bonus DVD. -R1
    It's not a demo, but rather the exact same bonus DVD included with the Limited Edition Fable. Don't know if they were sold or given away, but they do have thier own unique case artwork and paperwork.



    Xbox Live Starter Kit's cardboard sleeved Xbox games:
    Xbox Music Mixer
    Tetris Worlds Online
    MechAssault
    Project Gotham Racing 2
    Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
    Xbox Live Arcade’s launch disc with Ms. Pac Man

    The Xbox Live Arcade launch disc was originaly sold by Microsoft for $4.99 in 2004, but I'm pretty sure it was later included in one of the 3 month Xbox Live Starter Kit's. The games were all sealed and though they are common now, I wonder how those cardboard sleeves will fare over time. There were also some demo's included in the Starter Kits for Whacked!/MotoGP, MechAssault/MotoGP, and MechAssault 2/OutRun 2.



    Limited Editions, Collectors Editions, Special Editions, and GOTY's

    These are in standard DVD cases:
    Call of Duty 2: Big Red One Collectors Edition -R1
    Fable Limited Edition -R1
    Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter Limited Special Edition -R1
    Jade Empire Limited Edition -R1
    MechAssualt 2: Lone Wolf Limited Edition -R1
    Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition -R1
    Robocop Collectors Edition -R1
    Star Wars Starfighter: Special Edition -R1

    Robocop and Star Wars Starfighter never had regular Xbox editions. The collector/special edition titles were merely marketing ploy's.

    These are in DVD cases with cardboard slip covers:
    Godfather Limited Edition -R1
    Mortal Kombat: Deception Collectors Edition -R2
    Need for Speed: Most Wanted Black Edition -R2

    These are in metal cases with plastic slip covers:
    Doom 3 Limited Collectors Edition -R1
    Halo 2 Limited Collectors Edition -R1
    Marc Ecko's Getting Up Limited Edition -R2
    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory Limited Collectors Edition -R2
    True Crime: New York City Collector's Edition -R1

    These are in cardboard box's:
    Driver: Parallel Lines Limited Edition -R2
    Robotech: Battlecry Collectors Edition -R4



    Not for Resale: Limited Edition Packages (pack-in)
    Sega GT 2002 & JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future (2002)
    Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Tetris Worlds (2003)
    NCAA Football 2005/Top Spin (2004)

    Each came with a green bar on the cover identifying them as "Not for Resale: Limited Edition" packages. Each came with two seperate game manuals but both games were on a single disc. The disc's do not say "Not for Resale: Limited Edition" on them.

    The 2002 Sega GT 2002 & JSRF Holiday Bundle included Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding. It came with a green bar on the cover identifying it as "Not for Resale: Limited Edition". The disc does not say "Not for Resale: Limited Edition"

    The 2003 Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Tetris Worlds Holiday Bundle included Grabbed by the Ghoulies. It was the regular version of the game with a white sticker on the back of the case cover identifying it as "Not for Individual Sale". The disc does not say "Not for Individual Sale"

    Not for Resale Editions (pack-in)
    Halo: Combat Evolved (2004)
    Came with a green bar on the cover identifying it as "Not for Resale". The disc also had a green bar identifying it as "Not for Resale".

    Not for Resale Revente Interdite Package (pack-in)
    Project Gotham Racing 2/Xbox Arcade (2005)
    This came with a green bar on the cover identifying it as "Not for Resale Revente Interdite". It came with one game manual and two seperate discs. The disc's do not say "Not for Resale Revente Interdite".

    Forza Motorsport/Xbox Arcade (pack-in) 2005
    This came with a with a box on the cover stating "Includes Xbox Live Arcade". The disc itself is marked identically as the case cover.

    I believe the Canadian's recieved some different pack-in games, such as Oddworld Munch's Oddysee/NFL Fever and Gotham Racing 2/Crimson Skies 2.
    I haven't seen any of those first hand to verify though.



    That's about it from me! From my personal Xbox data lists:
    873 unique NTSC games
    221 were games not found on the Gamecube or PS2
    18 were, but received different titles
    100 Platinum Hits versions


    Lastly, I'd like to put in a good word for both of Dean Takahashi's books - 'Opening the Xbox' and 'The Xbox 360 Uncloaked'. To anyone even mildly interested in the Xbox, they are WELL worth your time. I bought the first book used to save some pennies and after I had finished it I made damn sure to buy his second book new because I WANTED to pay the man for his work! That's about the highest compliment I can give anyone.

    Here's some street cred. You know I spent hours stacking them up like that and still I managed to get some upside down. Oh, poop!

    I picked up a brand new copy of Outlaw Golf at my local Gamecrazy, which is going ou of business. It comes shrinkwrapped together with 1 dozen Ultra golf balls. There is a 2" cardboard band/sleeve going around it holding the two together, and it says "Free One Dozen Golf Balls Instantlly with the purchase of the attached video game - Flip Me Over!"

    Not sure if this was a Gamecrazy promotion or exclusive.

    I believe it was a Gamecrazy exclusive. That is the only place I have ever seen the bundle you described.

    I've seen 2 different variations on the "Fable Limited Edition"

    I have the "Limited Edition Bonus DVD Included" version that comes with both discs in a dual disc case.

    I have seen the "Limited Edition Bonus DVD" packaged separately in its own case, with the exact same artwork, only the oval stamp text is different and of course each case holds a single disc.

    As for the Mortal Kombat: Deception Collectors Edition, weren't there like 4 different versions, each with a different character on the cover, or was that the PS2 version? If so, what were the available characters?

    They were Mileena, Raiden, Baraka, and Scorpion.

    Pics of the covers are here
